A college professor who unsuccessfully challenged Congresswoman Michele Bachmann in the Republican primary two years ago says he'll try again this year.
Aubrey Immelman of Sartell announced his plans today on his Web site.
Today, I announce a second challenge to incumbent Rep. Michele Bachmann for the U.S. House of Representatives seat in Minnesota's 6th Congressional District, on a platform of national security, law and order, fiscal responsibility, and uncompromising opposition to political extremism.
The announcement comes the same day as Bachmann's high profile rally in Minneapolis with former Alaska governor Sarah Palin. Immelman teaches at St. John's University and the College of St. Benedict. He has not yet decided whether to run as a Republican or independent.
"The reason that I've decided to run again is because I want to provide voters with an alternative to our incumbent congresswoman," Immelman said. "I'm especially concerned about the revolution that's in the air. I do not think that is good for our country."
